This male Pileated Woodpecker (Dryocopus pileatus) moved in and out of the sun. The sun angle was just about ideal for this capture. One can even see the outline of the head under the red crest. The brown specks on the bill are particles of dirt. He had been picking into the ground before. Note also the tongue sticking out. It was an amazing experience to observe these beautiful and majestic birds. Photographed in William Hawrelak Park, Edmonton, Alberta
